A technician is troubleshooting connectivity issues to a PC and needs to verify which cable is plugged into the correct port of the patch panel. What tool should the technician use?
- toner probe
- punch down
Explanation:A multimeter is used to measure electrical current. A punch down tool is used to punch down cables on a patch panel. A crimper is used to crimp cables in a connector, while a toner probe is used to identify connections to a patch panel. A tone generator is attached at one end and the toner probe is used to determine which cable at the other end (such as at the patch panel) is the appropriate cable.
